Album Review

Four years after their last major-label release, inspirational a cappella group Take 6 returns with their first self-released album. Their last album for Warner Brothers, 2002's Beautiful World, was a muddle of pop covers and mild gospel with some ill-advised forays into smooth jazz instrumental backing that sounded well out of place with the sextet's trademark interlocking vocal parts. For Feels Good, the group get back to their roots both musically and spiritually, delivering straightforward inspirational tunes with nothing but their truly remarkable voices. Street-corner doo wop, the more sophisticated, jazzy vocal arrangements of the Ink Spots or the Four Freshmen, and the smooth R&B blend of the Four Tops or Boyz II Men are all present and accounted for, and the material is both perfectly arranged and delivered with passionate, devotional intensity. Feels Good is a welcome comeback for a group that had been unfairly marginalized during its major-label tenure.

Four outta five ain't bad

I've enjoyed Take 6 since I was in college in the early 90's. There were a few years when Take 6 strayed from their unique and (should have been) patented "sound-blend formula" that distinguished them from all other artists. Take 6 came back to the formula in "So Cool", and have now revisited it here again in "Feels Good". I didn't give 5 stars because some of the songs sound a bit pedestrian, and over-produced. Additionally, Take 6 has been loved for their instrument-less talents, and sound their absolute best only on the records without instrumental accompaniment. If there were a 4.5 star rating, I'd give this album that rating. The whole album is a sound garden, with amazing highs, lows, and Take 6's usual blend of stellar harmony. Absolute favorite songs thus far: This is Another Day, Family of Love, More than Ever, Just in Time, and Lamb of God. This album is a nearly pure return to Take 6's signature tradition of perfect a capella singing. If you enjoyed Take 6's first two albums, or the a capella on their second Christmas album, you'll love most of this album. Definitely a great and welcome effort by Take 6.

Simply The Best

As soon as I heard this CD was released in Japan last September, I went all out and got mine via FedEx. After listening to it constantly for 6 months, it's worth every penny of the $43.00 it took to get it. At $9.99, they are practically giving it away it's so good. This CD is in my mind their best yet. I've seen them 6 times in concert (how poetic) and they are just as good if not better live. These guys know how to get it done. The young punks that claim they can sing should all buy this CD and take notes. I can't say enough about these guys and their music. Their talent and humility is unparalleled. BUY THIS ENTIRE CD! Don't even think about it. You won't be disappointed!

Truly 'Feels Good'

I experienced Take 6 at the Blue Note New York; it was their state-side CD release party. The repertoire, energy and ministry made me 'Feel Good'. "Come On, Feels Good, Just In Time, More Than Ever, Lamb of God, and Set U Free" are my personal favorites. After witnessing this marvelous music ministry, I had the pleasure of sharing conversation with Mark and Joey Kibble, Claude McKnight, and the fill in for Dr. Cedric Dent - Chris from Florida. This, coupled with their explosive album (under their own label - Take 6 records), is a grammy winner!
